the location is great, typical Dutch sea and dunes scenery,an endless beach, excellent rental bikes and a nice beach cafe down on the beach. The hotel is big for Dutch standards, it has a somewhat Cape Cod feeling. Rooms are spacious, beds are typically Dutch, no king size, no queens, but small and narrow beds. However sleeping is a joy when you have a room on the sea side and you can leave the wind and the sound of the waves in.
Bathroom is all right, separate shower, rather big bath and there is a lot of place to put your stuff. The balcony is small with a too high wall that takes your view on the sea away when you sit.
Breakfast offers you Frisian sugar bread and everything you find on a Dutch breakfast table, including ham/eggs/cheese/, as well as the famous island made cranberry juice.
So far so good, but....then there is the nuisance of the internet connection; it is not there.
it is a general problem on the ' whole' island but this hotel which is the best around should be able to do something about it. Staff shows the typical ' I can' t help it, so find yourself a solution' attitude, client care is a development point, but apparently this is the standard way the people from the North of Holland deal with you (and each other). That's a pity for this otherwise nice hotel. Price/quality is just about all right. Recommendation to the hotel: Fix the internet problem!
